Tyvek Experiments and Ladybird books

For the placemat of the water themed plate I have been experimenting with using tyvek as the primary material. When heated with a heat gun it turns from a papery fabric to a more sturdy, bubbly and warped looking material.

I found some illustrations in the ladybird book “Pond Life” and from there started to paint an underwater themed scene taking inspiration from that book.

The end result should resemble aquatic life being damaged in some way.
